and what price. so when you say the gap, old navy and victoria's secret were standouts this season what brought the shoppers in? was there a hot item this season? >> not one hot item per se, gap has been seeing a real turn around. i think the stores look better, the merchandise has been improved. the marketing has been improved. old navy as well, a surprise. victoria's secret, again, the merchandise is fantastic, lingerie a clear winner at holiday at all times, so, i mean, again, if you look at your channel checks, those stores were generally per rehn y'ally crowded. i tend to agree with craig johnson, apple looked empty for what apple stores have been in the past. retailers like pandora generally crowded, charms a good buy. so you know, i think people were extremely cautious in what they bought this year and were very strategic and went in bought what they wanted and left. >> the gap, we just showed chat of the gap, monster 60% the past year, a turn around story, largely because at some point in time, they weren't getting their merchandise quite right you weren't hitting the fashion no
. trawler to get lumped to buy a navy ship and have patroller sink and some untried and then you have a super, super major international incident on your hand. so it's imperative that all sides try to resolve these issues among themselves in a calm, deliberate fashion and avoid escalation or in a provocative acts. >> is there an example on the economic front to see how far they can push? to think this is going on now on this front? >> yeah, i do. however, what worries me about these islands is this one question and you have trade dispute. it's another question because they have the safety of core interest. core interest means taiwan, hung calm, tibet and now these islands. that means there's not a lot of room for negotiation. in other words, you move a certain flexibility lets you describe is something being a core interest. that's worrisome because it's right in the brain of the sovereignty question and i'm not coming china is this uncompromising on any topic. >> question over here. do you have a microphone? >> thank you. following that question. in 2011, with secretary gates was vis
evolved last march, but this is one of the most senior. could it be a turning point? joining us now, navy captain chuck nash. thanks for being with us. how significant is this defection? >> well, i think it just shows that the tower's crumbling around assad, and it's certainly not good for him, and it's going to make those who are supporting him question his staying power. and it looks, at least from this and some of the efforts that the rebels are making, that his days truly are numbered. patti ann: so what would that mean for the future of syria? >> well, it depends on, first off, how does this end? that's the big question. and who makes it end? he's going to have to make the calculation as did moammar gadhafi of if he makes a deal with someone, is it something that could be honored in the future, or is he going to make a deal, give up his position -- and his position right now are two things. he's got chemical weapons and other secrets that he knows because he's been dealing with the iranians, and the third thing is to stop the killing. so if he makes a deal, it's to, it's to deal with
're all navy personnel . just listening to them. it is it a tough life period for them . you add in all of the cuts that are happening and it caused a lot of people to struggle and give us the example of what they are experiencing on base because of cutbacks. >> they have a comissary and post change of px . these are stores that provide discounted food and grocery and walmart type of score they can access it. reduced access for retirees . they can come and access theses of things and they have to find ways to squeeze pennies . that means pushing back on the benefits. they are fringe ben 50s of the military and there is it a lot of uncertainty for you and your family. they are the most population in the united states. moving from base to base. you don't know what type of access you are going to get. they are indiscriminate. >> and you are likely to see a increase in tricare. explain that. right now tricare fees have not gone up the way health care fees have gone up in the civilian side. there is a depressed for sometime . you can see them dramatical low increased and three times as much
.5 million. we've good an admiral for almost every ship in the navy right now. we've had this crete in terms of rank. there's all sorts of money to be saved in the pentagon that will have no effect whatsoever on our defensive posture or our capability. >> but steve, i'm curious, though. what is the difference, in your opinion, between raising the top marginal rate and closing some loopholes? if you get $1.2 trillion in revenue, why does it matter so much more to the president that you do it by raising the top rate when the super wealthy, as we've described on the show, aren't going to be paying higher taxes? >> the issue is, joe, it's a question of whether it's going to be $800 billion or $1.2 trillion or somewhere in between. if the number ends up being $1.2 trillion, and we'll see where it comes out, it's hard to do it just with deductions. you end up limiting deductions so much that you cut into charities. you cut into state and local governments. you cut into a whole bunch of home mortgage. >> what about the buffett proposal? >> the buffett proposal is a great idea. the buffett proposal
in the navy and every year on a ship they were ordered to push equipment off into the ocean so that they could get an increase in their budget to buy more stuff for the next year. we are buying tanks that the military does not use. i think that the pentagon could save money by using better buying power, teach those guys to save instead of throwing it in the ocean. guest: better buying power is the name of a pentagon initiative. everyone recognizes that their budget, which has not consistently since 1998, particularly a lot in the last 10 years, they are coming down on sequestration and something else, and there is a lot of push to buy smarter. there is a feeling that there has been some waste when you are flush with cash and the pentagon is looking for ways to lower their buying costs and get more value for taxpayer dollars. host: when you look at major weapons systems that could see a scaling back in spending, the predator drones aircraft, joint light technical vehicles, talk about these weapons systems. guest: at 35 is the largest program in the history of the pentagon. the procurement goes

in the navy. it is not a captain. it is an animal. all we have done is go through and look at areas where we could not necessarily save all the money, but we could transfer responsibilities that are not truly in the defense of the country out of the pentagon, and consolidate programs and save a significant amount of money. >> this weekend, talk with senator tom coburn about the fiscal cliff, the affordable care act, and the future of the republican party. the president has written several books and reports, including his latest, "the debt bomb." live sunday at the 12:00 noon eastern. >> no, we hear from a syrian opposition spokesman about the latest developments in the ongoing syrian civil war. the spokesman urged the international community to intervene, and calls for u.s. leadership, rather than just humanitarian aid. from johns hopkins, this is an hour and a half. >> thank you. thank you for everyone. thank you for the john hopkins university for organizing this event. let me start by sharing with you a personal story that just happened today, which gives you just a sense of how our lives
